Public Notices

NOPEC Gas Aggragation Program

Notice is hereby given that on December 23rd, 2014 commencing at 8:15pm at the Richmond Heights City Hall, 26789 Highland Rd., Richmond Heights, OH  44143, the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (“NOPEC”), on behalf of Richmond Heights City will hold a public hearing with respect to the Plan of Operations and Governance for the aggregation of competitive retail natural gas (the “Aggregation Program”), as previously authorized by such members pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code Section 4929.26.  The Aggregation Program will apply automatically to all eligible customers of retail natural gas within the jurisdiction of Richmond Heights City, except for those who elect to opt-out.  Customers may opt-out without charge during a designated opt-out period prior to the initiation of service under the Aggregation Program and approximately every two years thereafter.  NOPEC seeks to provide low-cost natural gas for consumers by selecting a supplier through a negotiation process and leveraging combined resources and buying power of member communities in NOPEC.  The Plan of Operations and Governance addresses the following topics regarding the Aggregation Program:  (1) goals, operations and funding; (2) consumer participation, including terms of opting-out; (3) customer care; (4) organization structure and management of NOPEC; and (5) the steps toward establishing the Aggregation Program.

Leaf Collection Service

Leaf collection has been underway since late October and is now mostly complete. Crews have finished
five complete passes
through the city and will continue to loop, weather permitting, until there are no more leaves
or, the weather changes -- whichever occurs first.

If you want to know what streets have been collected and when to next expect a crew on your street,
click the link below. The route schedule is updated several times a week:

Note: When it is snowing, or the ground is snow-covered, crews suspend leaf collection
in favor of plowing. Leaf collection will resume if/when the weather breaks and the
snow melts enough for crews to get down to the leaves.

Leaf Collection Service

The Service Department typically begins its curbside leaf pick-up service the last week of October, and continues for six weeks or until the majority of the leaves are picked up.

The routes alternate between the north and south side of the city, with any street north of Highland Road being the north side and any street south of Highland Road being the south side. Notice of the routes is posted weekly on the community boards as well as on the 24 hour recorded information line at (216) 383-6300. You can check the current status of the collection routes, by clicking here. You can view the entire history of this year's leaf collection here.

Your cooperation is required in following the guidelines below in order to ensure the safety of both personnel and equipment:

  • Please rake leaves to the tree lawn. Do not place leaves in the street. Do not place leaves near a fire hydrant.

  • Branches, twigs, sticks, rocks and grass clippings MUST NOT be mixed in with the leaves. This will cause damage and clogging to the leaf machines.

  • The decision not to pick up leaf piles contaminated with any of the above items will be at the discretion of the Service Director.

  • If you prefer, you may continue to bag your leaves for collection by our rubbish contractor.

  • Please give these guidelines to your landscaper.

Tree Limb And Brush Removal

Due in part to the severe weather, both over the past Winter and this Spring and Summer, we have encountered a large amount of dead shrubbery, brush and tree limb.  We have done our best to keep up with the overflow, but wanted you to know that Waste Management will also dispose of this matter.  There are a few guidelines to follow for including this material with your regular trash pick-up:

    1. All limbs or shrubbery must be in lengths not to exceed four (4) feet.

    2. The refuse must be bundled and tied, in amounts that are manageable for one person.  Pay attention to the weight of your bundles.  If it is difficult for you to get to curb, it is probably too heavy for Waste Management to handle.

    3. Place the refuse on your tree lawn near your trash to avoid confusion, and the need for multiple or rolling stops.

We want to thank you for your cooperation.  The chipper truck will still make rounds of the City, but this is another option to dispose of this material.
